Dear Landis Clients,


As I write this note, the Governor of Pennsylvania has just announced a state wide shut down of non-essential businesses for two weeks.  After reviewing the announcement, it appears that this is geared towards the following types of businesses:


  • Community recreation centers

  • Senior centers

  • Gyms (including yoga, barre and spin facilities)

  • Hair salons

  • Nail salons

  • Spas

  • Casinos

  • Concert venues

  • Theaters

  • Bars

  • Sporting venues

  • Golf Courses

  • Retail facilities (including shopping malls)


This is not a mandate, but rather a suggestion by the State of PA to close businesses in order to flatten the curve on the spread of the Covid-19 virus.   We do not believe that Landis falls in to any of the categories listed above and will continue to operate as normal, unless we are required to cease operations by either the State or Federal Government. 


As you can imagine, we are starting to see call offs by employees due to the closure of schools which present child care issues for our staff. Additionally, anyone who is not feeling well, has been asked to stay home until they exhibit no signs of any type of illness and are approved by a doctor to return to work.  As another precaution we are no longer bringing in temporary employees whom we have not worked with prior to the state shut down.  With this being said, we most likely will experience employee shortages or call offs in the coming days and weeks due to issues related to the Pandemic.  Landis will do our best to meet the service level agreements (SLAs) that we have committed to, however, at this time I will have to suspend our SLAs until further notice.  We will do our absolute best to get your orders out daily and in a timely basis, but we can no longer guarantee all shipments will go out the same day if they come in by the agreed upon cutoff time that has been established. We are in territory that none of us had ever thought would occur and therefore we are doing our best to manage the process day to day. 


We appreciate your business and wish everyone continued health during this unprecedented time in our lives. We will continue to provide updates on a regular basis via email or via our website.
